Kulasekara to Imrul Kayes, OUT, gone! Short on the off and was drawn into playing the pull, was targeting square leg but ended up getting a top edge, landed straight into the hands of Samaraweera at fine leg

Imrul Kayes c Samaraweera b Kulasekara 23 (52m 37b 2x4 0x6) SR: 62.16

Bangladesh 65/1   Tamim Iqbal 34* (40b 4x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 6.5-1-26-1

Dilshan to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, But his lack of restraint has cost him here, had already committed himself to that shot as he charged down the track, Dilshan held back the length just a hint and Tamim tried to launch him over mid-off, got plenty of elevation but not the distance as he didn't connect it well, Lakmal ran back a few steps and judged it to perfection

Tamim Iqbal c Lakmal b Dilshan 40 (58m 46b 5x4 0x6) SR: 86.95

Bangladesh 71/2   Mohammad Ashraful 0* (1b)   TM Dilshan 3-0-16-1

Lakmal to Raqibul Hasan, OUT, brilliantly taken by Samaraweera, rose up after landing short on the off, tried to play off the back foot with an angled bat, got a thick edge and it was flying past a widish slip but he hurled himself to his right and plucked it one-handed

Raqibul Hasan c Samaraweera b Lakmal 0 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 71/3   Mohammad Ashraful 0* (1b)   RAS Lakmal 1-1-0-1

Lakmal to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, another one goes! Lakmal strikes again, short and wide, goes for the cut and slashes hard while doing it, flies off the outside edge and Welegedara at third man judges it superbly, running forward, diving and taking an excellent low catch

Shakib Al Hasan c Welegedara b Lakmal 1 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Bangladesh 74/4   Mohammad Ashraful 1* (4b)   RAS Lakmal 1.4-1-1-2

Randiv to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, he has given him, the sweep proves to be Rahim's downfall. He has premeditated the shot, is too far across, and fails to connect. Randiv gets him full on the toe, and the umpire has no doubts regarding this

Mushfiqur Rahim lbw b Randiv 35 (54m 52b 3x4 0x6) SR: 67.30

Bangladesh 132/5   Mohammad Ashraful 21* (42b 1x4)   S Randiv 6.4-0-20-1

Randiv to Mahmudullah, OUT, literally down and out as another man falls to the sweep. Decides belatedly to sweep, the ball dips and misses the bat as he falls over and is hit on the back pad in front of the stumps (down). The umpire has no choice but to lift the finger to this plumb lbw (out)

Mahmudullah lbw b Randiv 45 (66m 47b 3x4 1x6) SR: 95.74

Bangladesh 227/6   Mohammad Ashraful 65* (90b 4x4)   S Randiv 9.3-0-45-2

Kulasekara to Naeem Islam, OUT, Ashraful is gone, big blow, even though only nine balls are to go, Naeem goes for the big heave, misses, Sanga fumbles as it bounces in front of him, Ashraful wants the bye, but Sanga recovers well and hits the stumps direct to find Ashraful inches short

Mohammad Ashraful run out 75 (148m 94b 6x4 0x6) SR: 79.78

Bangladesh 238/7   Naeem Islam 1* (2b)   KMDN Kulasekara 9.3-1-44-1
